Friday's are pay days, so I was out paying bills and buying food. I am happy to say, that I paid off 2 bills and bought food. This makes me so happy. I have only 1 more large bill to pay off now. But its do able.
When we first moved down, we agreed as a group that we would pitch in for food, but the problem I was having with this is, the food that was being bought was not always food that I would eat or even like. So after my bills were caught up, I decided to buy my own food. I know what I like to eat and what I need for lunches at work. I now have a complete budget for all things. My food budget is set at 25 a week, which is not a lot. I check the newspaper for coupons, so that I can get the best bang for my buck.
Now the problem is, where do I store my food? Grant it, the refrigerator stuff has to be in there, but the rest of it should be where? I thought about it for sometime. I decided to put it in the pantry and see how that goes. Its been three days now, and some of my milk is gone and I feel that my cereal has been eaten. But I have no proof of that. I don't want to be an ass about it, but $25 a week is not a lot of money to feed myself. I have to plan out breakfast, lunch and dinner on that money. That allows me .84 cents a meal. Trust me when I say, that is hard to do.
The other day I baked two Titino's pizza's. ( they are small) plus I was starving. I did not get a lunch at work. So anyways when I was done, I was going to put the rest up for later. Pizza is good hot or cold. Later never happened, cause one of the guys asked if he could have a piece of my pizza, I said sure go ahead.
Michael and Kevin both have been good to me, I have not always had money and they fronted me the money. I since have paid them off. But now I feel bad, if they ask and I say no. I want to say no. Cause I know, that my food is not going to last, if they keep asking for it. When do I start saying no? Or do I sit them both down and tell them how I feel about it? I just don't know anymore.
